McDonald's franchisees to create 2,500 new UK jobs in 2012

McDonald’s UK announced recently that it is expecting to create at least 2,500 new jobs across the country this year which would take McDonald’s UK workforce to 90,000. According to the information provided, an estimated 30% of the new jobs will go to first-time workers, helping them gain a valuable first foothold in the world of work. More than half of the 2,500 jobs are expected to go to young people under the age of 25.

The new jobs build on the 13,500 jobs McDonald’s has created over the last three years and come as a result of a continued period of sustained investment and growth driven by new restaurants and extended opening hours, a major restaurant refurbishment programme and roll-out of new technology as well as constant menu innovation and new menu options.

Jill McDonald, CEO, McDonald’s UK, said, “Despite these difficult economic conditions our continued emphasis on good quality food at affordable prices and improving the experience for our customers and our people, has meant that we are able to continue to invest in the business and create jobs. Today’s job market is particularly tough for young people so it remains vital that these jobs continue to offer great training programmes that teach the valued, transferable skills that will give them a solid footing on the career ladder and help them to progress their careers with us or other employers.” (kbp)
